Jerry B. Jenkins, co-author of the "Left Behind" series, which has sold more than 63 million copies, has launched a custom publishing house called Christian Writers Guild Publishing (CWGP).

Owner of the Christian Writers Guild (CWG), Jenkins has been against self-publishing in general, but he recently had a change of heart. He said CWGP will be different from other custom publishing houses in that it features "Published," a six-month course whereby the new author is mentored by an experienced author.

When students with works-in-progress complete the course, CWGP will publish their books, providing a copy editor, proofreader, cover and type designer, e-book formatter, printer, a package of promotion and marketing and social media materials.

"This is different from self-publishing," said Jenkins, who has written more than 180 books. "It's mentored, coached and educated publishing. We come alongside through this course and surround them with seasoned industry professionals."

"I've criticized self-publishing because so many end up with schlocky covers, typos and poor production quality," he added. "CWGP is committed to providing writers with a valuable education and a great publishing experience."

Headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colo., CWG has trained aspiring writers for more than 40 years by offering writing courses, with each student mentored by a published author.
